KEYS TO A GOPHER WIN

Execute Offense - Get everyone executing at a high level this afternoon. Do the things right, let your offense generate points rather than just playmakers.

No Turnovers - Just like when Pitino was there, this team forces a lot of turnovers. Take care of the ball and don’t give away possessions.

Offensive Rebounding - The Panthers are really bad at boxing out. Nothing will break their will faster than offensive rebounds that become quick baskets.

PREDICTION

We win this one handily.

Minnesota - 79
Florida International - 62
